MEMBER NEWS: Xergy secures additional investment to boost Proteus project management software expansion

Technology company, Xergy, has raised £3.1 million in additional investment as the company builds on the growing success of its Proteus project management software.

The latest investment round was heavily oversubscribed and was supported by both its existing investment base and a number of new ​strategic ​investors. Xergy has raised more than £10.2million from its inception in 2018 to the delivery of this latest Series A+ round.

Xergy co-founder Colin Manson, said: “This successful financial raise allows us to increase the size of our in-house development team by recruiting new talent who will focus on building Proteus’s generative AI. This will further help our clients optimise their project performance. In addition, the raise will support our growth into Australia and our planned entry into the United States later in 2024.”

Xergy provides a complete work solution for project management through its software platform Proteus, a feature-rich project management tool that meets the demands of complex projects, global teams and ambitious targets.

Proteus is used by multiple organisations to support digital transformation and dramatically improve project delivery, including significant energy sector clients in the UK and engineering companies around the world.

The software has proved popular with customers thanks to its intuitive ease of use but also its proven ability to increase efficiency by removing needless cost and improving utilisation rates and project profitability. It integrates seamlessly with third-party​ ERP, HR & finance​ software, enhancing their capability and providing a single source of visibility for all projects and data.

Giving project managers easy access to actionable insights provided by project controls data sets Proteus apart for users and investors alike.

​Co-Founder and Xergy Chairman, Professor James McCallum, said: “Our latest raise enables the Xergy team to broaden market penetration and awareness of Proteus and further boost our ambition to bring a game-changing, financially compelling, project controls solution to a global market. Our vision remains to assist our clients in delivering exceptional project performance whilst embracing the broader potential of digital transformation. We are humbled by the continued support of our legacy shareholders and excited to add some new investors who are joining us on our journey.”​​

​​​​​Led by industry stalwarts, James McCallum and Colin Manson, Xergy recently announced new office openings in Dundee, Scotland and Perth, Australia which have added to Xergy’s presence in Aberdeen and Dubai. The company currently has a workforce of 34.​​​​

Gneiss Energy acted as financial advisor on the latest raise.

AREG is the original energy transition organisation, working on behalf of members to empower the energy supply chain and champion its expertise. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to find out more about membership.

AREG has played an important role in the growth of Scotland’s renewable energy sector, engaging the supply chain and developing the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. However, we are only at the very beginning of the transition that AREG was established to both lead and support so there are still opportunities for companies to get into the constantly evolving renewables supply chain. We look forward to continuing our work together as renewables builds on its place as Scotland’s main source of power, and as we seek to deliver real change in the crucial areas of heat and transport.

Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce has worked closely with AREG since its formation. The recent progress in the developments of offshore wind projects by Equinor and Vattenfall are as a result of the work of the group over many years. The north-east is known as the oil and gas capital of Europe. At the Chamber, we believe the region must evolve its position to being recognised as the energy capital. Whilst hydrocarbons will continue to be essential in driving our economy for years to come, the generation of renewable resources will play an increasingly important role in providing cost-effective power, innovative development and economic growth.

The enthusiasm and dedication of the early group that would become AREG was fundamental in us choosing to launch All-Energy in Aberdeen. The first tiny show was held in 2001, and AREG’s Chairman at the time, Jeremy Cresswell, played such an active role that I often describe him in terms such as All-Energy’s ‘midwife’. All-Energy is now the UK’s largest renewable and low carbon energy exhibition and conference in terms of number of attendees, space booked, and number of exhibiting companies. As AREG became firmly established, their presence and support for the event grew spectacularly over the years. We thank them most sincerely for their invaluable input.


Vattenfall has forged a strong working relationship with AREG through the development of the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. AREG has worked tirelessly on behalf of the North East and it can take enormous credit for the growth of sustainable energy in the region and the path it has cleared for the region to capture further investment.


Aberdeen City and Shire is emerging as a key location for renewables by successfully transferring its world-class oil and gas expertise into the sector and AREG has done much to advance this through a broad range of initiatives. It has acted as a catalyst in driving further investment in the local economy by engaging with companies, Government, public bodies and existing projects and we have been pleased to support their efforts. Scottish Enterprise will continue to engage with AREG as we increase Scotland’s use of renewable energy.
